At Magpie, we are passionate about using the power of digital technology to make life easy and efficient.
We solve everyday life issues by re-imagining solutions using technology. We bring everyday life services straight to the palm of your hand, via your phone.
Magpie services are ‘best of breed’, meaning we search the globe for the best of their kind apps and services and, if we can’t find the right one, we make it ourselves.
We believe in a connected world, where individuals and organisations share the information they need at the click of a button.
We’ve sourced smart tech, replaced paper with screens and given you new and exciting ways to digitally get in touch with your customers – this is our vision of the connected world.
We appreciate the value of personal information and understand that Permission is Key.
At Magpie, we know that organisations want to provide their customers with a personalised service but we also know that this is most effective when the consumer has knowingly shared their personal details in order to enable this personalisation.Customers are becoming aware of the value of their data and now expect a return from their suppliers for sharing – we call this The Value Exchange.We want a world where consumers have choice and control and organisations have knowledge and opportunity.
We believe that consumers have a fundamental right to privacy and that businesses that respect this will win.
This is our Ethos and we have the culture and technology to deliver it. It’s smart and ethical technology on everyone’s terms.
